New York Islanders
The New York Islanders went back-to-back wins by beating the Boston Bruins and the New Jersey Devils. This team failed to make it into a winning streak as the Devils went back at them and won with a 2-0 shutout. The Islanders have a total of 28 shots on goal but credit to the Devils defense as it was a far performance from their previous matchup. Jordan Eberle had a total of six shots on the gaol while Matthew Barzal had none. Nick Leddy has some good shots as well but he failed in all his four attempts. Consistency has been the enemy of the Islanders since the start of the season and hopes to address it very soon.
Players to watch: M. Barzal C (G 2, A 2, PTS 4), N. Dobson D (G 0, A 3, PTS 3), J. Eberle RW (G 2, A 1, PTS 3).
The Washington Capitals are on a dip as they lost three of their last four matches. This was far from a 2-0 start that they have and now has a 3-0-1-2 record. This was unfair to the Capitals’ effort as two of their losses came in shootouts and one was in overtime. To beat the Capitals, it is going to take teams a tremendous amount of effort to keep up in all periods. Expect them to give the Islanders a hard time and this should be a good game until the finish. Their last game was against Buffalo and Nicklas Backstrom along with Justin Schultz has played well by scoring one goal and one assist.
Players to watch: N. Backstrom C G 4 A 3 PTS 7, J. Vrana LW G 3 A 3 PTS 6, T. Wilson RW G 3 A 3 PTS 6.
